Local Companies Invited To ‘Meet The Buyer’ Event – 06/09/13

We’ve teamed up with the National Federation of Builders (NFB) to create a special event designed specifically for companies based in Yorkshire, Humber and the North East to meet key personnel from Henry Boot Construction.

Our very first ‘Meet the Buyer’ event is free to attend and will take place on Friday 27th September at Leeds College of Building.

The aim is to increase our supply chain to assist in the delivery of future projects and we are committed to keeping work local which is why we’re particularly interested in speaking with companies based in Yorkshire, Humber and the North East that can supply a direct workforce. If the event is a success, we will roll out similar events in the North West and the East Midlands.

The format of the day will be:

7.30    Arrive – free bacon butties and refreshments will be served

8.00     Event opened by John Millichap of the National Federation of Builders

8.05     Presentation by Simon Carr, Managing Director of HBC

8.30     Face-to-face meeting opportunities with Henry Boot Supply Chain personnel including Neil Watson, Supply Chain Manager and Mick Tomlinson, Chief Buyer; the venue will be open until midday to accommodate individuals arriving throughout the morning.

To attend, please pre-register via email to info@builders.org.uk fax 08450 578173 or call 08450 578 181.

“There will be opportunities available for all sectors of the construction industry, so if you are interested in working on high profile contracts in your local area this is an ideal opportunity to promote your business to one of the region’s major contractors and network with other contractors from your local area.”

Neil Watson, HBC Supply Chain Manager
